The Special Youth Challenge of Northwest Iowa takes severely disabled, mentally handicapped and terminally ill youth on deer and turkey hunts each year. Not only is this program blessing the young people and their families, but some of them, along with the area sportsmen who assist in these events, are coming to Christ each year. Gerry talks with Phil Driver, one of the directors of this continually effective and expanding outdoor outreach.

Michael & Lisa Drackley from Camp Forest Springs located in Wisconsin’s northeastern woods, share with Gerry about this unique facility. Gerry has visited a number of Christian camps, and quite often there is at least one staff member at these camps who has graduated from the Camp Forest Springs training program. If the listeners have been thinking about getting involved with camp ministry, this is the place where they can become fully equipped and trained in year-round outdoor adventures for winning campers to Christ.

Gerry joins Jim McNamara near Lima, OH for a turkey hunt and to visit Jim’s taxidermy studio. Jim mounts all types of animals, but birds are his specialty. He has hunted ducks all over the country, and it was on one of these hunts that he almost lost his life. Jim shares about that particular day and how in the middle of the event, at peace with God, he listened as the Holy Spirit spoke to him to act a certain way during the episode that saved his life.

Looking at how fearfully and wonderfully made we are is the topic of this week's program. Gerry visits with Dr. Richard Swenson to discuss how with mathematics and science used to look at creation, it is impossible to believe that it happened by chance. Together they look at a number of illustrations used in Dr. Swenson’s book More Than Meets the Eye.  Clearly, we are without excuse not to see there is a Creator of the creation around us.

On this program, Gerry visits with Wildlife Biologist Dave Battle, who works in the Anchorage, Alaska area. Dave takes the listeners back to the days when he was growing up, and how the “the good ol’ boys” his dad ran around with all believed in God and went to church.  So, he figured it must be something he should do, too. Later, when he was in college, everything he was hearing pointed away from God and to evolution. Something happened in one of his classes that made him realize there had to be an intelligent designer and it could not have happened by chance. The point is, there is a Creator God, and the evidence is all around us in the outdoors and the creatures that live there.

Gerry visits with Ken Ham at The Creation Museum in Parkersburg, KY near the Cincinnati, OH airport. Ken relates the difficulties that arose with zoning permits when they first tried to build in a different location. Clearly, the door had shut. They chose not to fight it, and waited for God’s leading.  They now have a museum that is far bigger than they had ever planned on being able to build, with additional room for other projects. God is in control, if we allow Him.

When Gerry visited a church in Hornbeck, LA where he was speaking, he interviewed Rodney Johnson who coordinated this event. Rodney shares with Gerry about the preparations to make this kind of outreach happen, and how the key ingredient is prayer. Game dinners are a powerful way to reach men in the community, and Rodney shares stories of changed lives.

This week's program is with the editor of Bow Hunter magazine, Dwight Schuh. Dwight shares about the difficultly he had in becoming an outdoor writer and how God used that in his life to help him see his need for a relationship with Jesus Christ. Dwight relates how it was clear that after making this decision, little by little, he noticed his opportunities in the writing world began to take a turn. He can clearly see where God’s hand was evident, including the time he was charged by a bull moose that he shot on a hunting trip.

Knight and Hale game calls is probably one of the best-known game calling businesses in the outdoor industry. Gerry interviews one of the two founders, David Hale.  They discuss how we are without excuse in God’s creation not to see that there is a great creator God. The two talk about The Great Commission, and discuss the many ways that outdoorsmen can be reached with the love of Jesus Christ in order to keep them from the flames of Hell.

The topic is game dinners and outdoor outreach to people in our circle of influence on this week’s program. Gerry interviews Pastor Craig Mickey, and he discusses how their church got started doing these outreaches.  He shares how it has allowed him to build relationships with unsaved people in the community who would not otherwise go to church. Their efforts are paying off as they are seeing sportsmen come to Christ through their events.
